Reviewed by Gisela Dixon for Readers' Favorite The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name: Short Stories by Fiza Pathan is an excellent collection of short stories, all of which revolve around the topic of LGBT worldwide. The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name contains 21 stories on the lives and status of the gay and lesbian community as a whole, and draws from existing realities around the world on this human rights issue. The stories themselves are beautifully woven and most of them are touching. Various cultural backgrounds, nationalities, and ethnicities are explored in these stories and all of them are not only relatable, but extremely believable and shine a strong spotlight on the lives and challenges of the LGBTQIA community throughout the world. I loved reading The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name: Short Stories by Fiza Pathan and couldn’t put it down. I found the stories poignant and, at the same time, delivering a strong message and depicting the realities of lives lived in the shadows and often under the burden of shame. Fiza Pathan is obviously a very talented writer and manages to make the stories not only meaningful, but also enjoyable in a certain sense purely from the creative aspect. The actual content of the stories is moving and sad. However, hopefully, it is books like these that will ultimately enable true recognition and acceptance of this much alienated and shunned community, and eventually enable them to get to a place where being LGBTQIA is regarded just as normal and ordinary as being heterosexual or anything else in the world today. This is a must-read book!
